Global Urban Perspectives

Our Mission

Transforming students by raising their awareness of urban issues and mobilizing them to live out the incarnational gospel in cities around the world.

Our Vision

GUP seeks to cultivate a culture of humility and service by providing students with opportunities to come alongside and learn from urban communities. We also seek to dispel myths and stereotypes related to urban issues by planning educational, campus-wide events for the Wheaton College student body.

How to Get Involved

Global Urban Perspectives offers a number of programs during the year. Please refer to our Announcements for a listing of these special events.

GUP also offers summer immersion programs to different locations both domestic and abroad. Some of our partners include Mile High Ministries in Denver, Colorado; Inter Varsity in Los Angeles, California and Chicago, Illinois; and new this year InnerCHANGE, a Christian order among the poor. If you are interested in living incarnationally among the urban poor, please refer for our
